The man that began the “Stay Home Movement” in the DMV is leaving for greener pastures.
Maryland wide receiver Stefon Diggs has announced that he will forgo his senior year and enter the NFL Draft.
Despite having each of his three seasons shortened due to injury, Diggs still totaled 150 receptions for 2,227 yards and 14 touchdowns. The former Good Counsel star also had 934 return yards and a pair of kickoff return touchdowns.
Prior to coming to College Park, Diggs was ranked eighth in 247Sports composite rankings for the 2012 class. The Olney native chose Maryland over offers from schools like Auburn, Florida, Florida State, and Ohio State.
Diggs joins fellow Terrapin wideout Deon Long as receivers that will be leaving Maryland to pursue their NFL dreams. Long will be leaving due to graduation.
After the two high-profile departures, Maryland will have Marcus Leak, Juwann Winfree, Taivon Jacobs, Levern Jacobs, and commit D.J. Moore.
We’ll have more on the impact of Diggs’ departure in the coming days.
